    Contrary to what you’d expect, typing speeds have decreased since computers became ubiquitous. All the world records were set a generation ago.

    90 is very fast, top 5%.

    Average for someone who types all day is probably 55, I max at about 75 and people comment on it, and once got a 122 on a test. Compare that with my mother once telling me she wouldn’t hire a typist who typed less than 120 wpm!

    Paying full price on Amazon is so 2020 鈥 do this in 2021.

    The secret to shopping Amazon like a pro.

    I type about 45 WPM… on QWERTY. It’s more like 80 to 90 on Dvorak, which obviously is my preference. Yet my speed on QWERTY is considered adequate for most office purposes. I find that once I get upwards of about 60-70 WPM, the bottleneck starts being how fast I can think of what I want to say next. That means that even though I can hit 80-90, I only do so for a short period of time before I have to pause and recharge for another burst. This leaves me with precious little motivation to improve any further.

    I know we all talk faster than this, but that doesn’t require having to remember how to spell words. Also, speech is full of filler words and noises like “umm” and “like”, which don’t fly in text.

    40 wpm is considered decent. Few jobs will require more than this.

    60 wpm is the benchmark for jobs where all you do is type something already written in a different format.

    90 wpm is exceptional!

    Most job descriptions don鈥檛 ask for more than 80 WPM. 90 WPM is very good territory for marketing your skill.

    Should I hire remote software developers from Turing.com?

    It is so hard to hire strong engineers for my company in San Francisco.

    Yes, at 90 WPM you鈥檇 be doing very well鈥攖yping more than twice as fast as the average typist (at just 40 WPM).

    Typing at this speed would also help you meet the requirements of most typing professions from transcribing to programming.

    (Save that of a Court Reporter, which requires an average typing speed of 225 WPM!)

    Yes, anything over 60鈥75 is considered fast, doing 90 on average is amazing and can get you almost any typing job.

    Though you may need to have 120鈥150 before entering any competitions.

    I think you meant characters per minute. If not, no human has done 500WPM. If the average word has 5 letters and 1 space, that would amount to 3000 characters per minute, divide that by 60 seconds and you get 50 per second. Nobody can even come close to 50 strokes of the keyboard per second.

    I鈥檝e been typing for 25 years and I’m 33 now. When I was about eight or nine, my mom started teaching me how to type. In 5th grade, I was around the high eighties wpm with 10 percent accuracy. I haven鈥檛 typed in a while and wanted to see where I stood. Yesterday I hit 93 wpm with 99% accuracy. This was on 10fastfingers.

    Sorry, kid. With that speed, you might be able to replace my ink cartridges. Or sweep the floor.

    It would be, if it was true. Can you type this fast for extended periods of time? Typing in loljkjk does not count.

    If you鈥檙e telling the truth, you have no problem taking this test:
